The first issue of The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is out today, based on the Disney XD Animated TV Series! No, I haven’t bailed on Young Justice – I’m still penciling and inking that every moth, but I did find the time to pencil a 10-page story for the first issue of this new Avengers title and I had a blast doing it! The Avengers! Fin Fang Foom! The Mandarin! And it’s written by Christopher Yost– writer/producer of the TV show!

Here’s the blurb:

    Guess there was not enough room in the credits to write your name in full? They credit three more editors than DC regularly does.

    But then again, Christopher Yost and Christopher Jones next to eachother would’ve looked… weird.

    Liked the art; story too (it has the vibe of the first season). Did you get to design FFF and the Mandarin?

    I’ve had the Chris vs. Christopher thing as a recurring problem through my career. I’ve always used Christopher Jones as my preferred credit, but in conversation I go by Chris. It’s caused confusion time and time again, and this was my first time working with this editor and it seems to have slipped through again.

    I did get to design both FFF and Mandarin. Christopher Yost’s script indicated which existing look for Mandarin he wanted to use as a jumping off point, but I was able to put my own spin on it to a small degree. I was actually given free reign as far as what to do with FFF, but I stayed pretty true to the classic look. I figured if I strayed too far, it just became a generic dragon, and I wanted to to clearly be Fin Fang Foom!
